Varicose veins don’t only make many patients feel self-conscious about their image; they can be uncomfortable, too. That’s why it makes sense to choose a leading provider of varicose vein treatments in Melbourne.

The three common visible vein conditions – spider veins, reticular veins and varicose veins – all have their own unique treatment options and nowadays, non-surgical techniques have largely replaced surgery.

Sclerotherapy and Microsclerotherapy

 

These two vein removals are very similar, differing only in the type of veins they are used to treat. Sclerotherapy is often used for varicose vein removal, whereas microsclerotherapy is preferred for spider veins. Both are similar procedures in which a solution injected into the problem veins cleanses the affected area and collapses the vein walls to seal them.

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS)

 

UGS is another variation of common sclerotherapy treatment that uses ultrasound for more efficient treatment of abnormal veins. It is often used to treat varicose veins, with the main difference between it and normal sclerotherapy being that the ultrasound guide enhances the accuracy of the process.

Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT)

 

This procedure replaces the surgical “stripping” procedure and uses a laser fibre device to treat large varicose veins. EVLT is often combined with other procedures for maximum benefit.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

 

Ambulatory phlebectomy mainly targets visibly bulging veins. It often complements sclerotherapy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and endovenous laser treatments. This vein treatment involves marking the visible dilated veins, and then anaesthetising them with a local anaesthetic. The veins are pulled with a special hook. Stitches are generally not required.

Non-surgical treatments for abnormal veins

Our Melbourne vein care specialists have led the industry for the past two decades, introducing new techniques to our clients to make their results faster, more effective and more convenient. We offer a wide range of non-surgical varicose vein treatments because the overwhelming majority of abnormal veins can be safely eliminated with non-surgical outpatient procedures.

Unlike surgery, non-invasive techniques often do not require general anaesthesia or hospitalisation. Their recovery periods are shorter, and they are less likely to result in scarring. These procedures are designed to eliminate symptoms of diseased veins, improve venous health and restore a more youthful and healthy appearance to the affected area.
